I love H. Beam Piper. His stories generally have a good message, I would never say they are simple because he has created a complex world and characters, but he writes in a manner that makes it easy to listen tow hile multitasking. He is one of my favorite novella and scifi authors.
I've enjoyed all of librivox's Piper recordings. They are done by various readers but each have been superb, and this is no different. Excellent reading!
